Take A Bow

From Country Life, 9:13 pm on 1 May 2015

James Saunders is a secondary school teacher during the day, but in his spare time he makes bows and arrows for hunting.    He says luckily for him his bow making, often out of kanuka, is better than his aim in the bush when goats often continue on their merry way undisturbed. His favourite bow wood is osage orange, a tree brought to New Zealand by Amercian gold prospectors.
